Is there any home remedy for thigh numbness?

i have had some very slight thigh numbness for a few days, its very slight I only feel it in the skin not deep and it doesn't tingle. I have been seeing a chiropractor before I felt this and was wondering if somehow the chriopractor could have done something, I have scheduled an appointment with DR but trying to see if I can remedy somehow in the week prior to being seen.

1. Prior to seeing your Doctor, check with blood sugar level,calcium and/or salt deficiency?
2. get a GPE [general physical examination] by a [neurologist /general surgeon] since there is a difference between numbness-cramps and claudication and/or Neuropathy.
3. since there is thigh numbness thus condition which comes into mind is/are segmental neuropathy or neuralgia, and most likely : meralgia paresthetica, femoral Neuropathy, so in best interest it is wise to see a Neurologist for Neurological Examination and appropriate Investigation and also with a General Surgeon regarding Nerve Examination.
4. Till you have come up with reports and Doctor’s Opinion, line of management will be
. Adequate bed rest
. Loose clothing [as tight clothes, irritates the nerve]
. You could consider adding a daily B complex vitamin supplement.
. If it comes out to be Diabetic/peripheral neuropathy, treatment will be given according to it, but if there is any nerve dysfunction, then physiotherapy and muscle exercises along with lifestyle management is required, because prevention depends upon the cause of the nerve damage [if there]
